    Directions to Trailhead

    The Elwill Bay Coastal Path and Trentishoe Down Walk is a beautifully scenic walking route in Exmoor National Park; however it is also very hard-going in places. The trail will lead you along a steep cliff face for some stunning views of the Bristol Channel before looping inland on a return that features several ascents and descents along a forested valley. This route will definitely get your heartrate up, but the beautiful scenery more than makes up for the physical effort required.
